Atlanta is the fintech capital of the world. Atlanta-based firms handle 70 percent of the credit, debit, and prepaid card sales in the nation, hence the city’s nickname, “Transaction Alley.” In the state of Georgia alone, more than 5,000 opportunities will emerge in this sector over the next few years. There is no faster, more affordable way to learn key fintech concepts than through the Certificate in Fintech Innovation at the Robinson College of Business.
The certificate will ground you with an understanding of the impact fintech technologies make on the financial services field. By the end, you will be able to tackle business problems with creative and innovative fintech-driven solutions.
Leverage the Known and Unknown in Our Innovation Studio
What truly sets the certificate apart is our Innovation Studio, which provides an experiential environment for networking and collaboration. As part of an interdisciplinary team, you will test prototypes, design compelling and competitive value propositions, and pitch to prospective customers and investors. You also will develop critical soft skills like emotional intelligence, communication, and social influence/trust. Via a collision of perspectives and concepts, you will become comfortable with ambiguity and experimentation, and build the courage to explore and leverage the known—and unknown—technologies that are profoundly impacting our world.
